Apologies and no offence intended to my American friends here, but I couldn't resist sharing this (found on FB)

So, when there's an obvious fault it's back to concentrating on a non-American/immigrant side of things... because there's been no cheating there?

Well done to the GIMP team!
 
Both the Windows installer and the OS X build of GIMP 2.8.18 are available for downloading now. Please note that we are likely to release more builds for OS X to fix known packaging issues. Building 2.9.4 is still taking some time, we'll let you know once we have news.

Yeah... that's just too close to be coincidental.

Story

I am me... ...that is all
Introduction
I think... therefore... therefore.... 

Damn! What was I thinking? I think it was Lorem ipsum... something or other....

I like all that computery stuff, gadgets, motorbikes, movies, music and I love photography and graphics.
I work in three different but related areas (well... ya gotta feed the family): photography, web design and web marketing.

I have a gorgeous wife (seriously, she's a knockout!) and three kids that occasionally border on being nut-cases (well- I'm their Da :) )
Bragging rights
I once got to record a few songs in The Factory Studio in Dublin, where U2 recorded their album Zooropa and mixed the tracks in the famous Windmill Lane studios not long after The Rolling Stones had been there.... but I don't like to brag about these things ;-)

I cannot overstate how good is this school. With one of my kids finished there a couple of years ago and the other two working through the senior cycle at the moment, I think I can speak from experience and say that this is a very good school. Teachers seem personally invested in the progress of the kids and the results confirm this. A bonus in my mind is that the school is out in the country and the kids pretty much stay on school grounds for the day.

This is definitely worth a visit. I dropped in with a few friends to catch a bit of the Isle of Man TT races together and have a bit of banter... couldn't have picked a better spot. The staff were very friendly and even asked at on stage if we could hear the commentary from the races and just handed me the TV remote to control the sound. A really nice spot with a good atmosphere, not too dark and not too bright, and a mix of customers from all age groups.

I cannot give enough praise for this firm. Thorough, professional, knowledgeable and supremely capable, but always friendly plain-speaking too.

Friendly guys, bikers too and happy to help you find what you need whether it's in stock or needs to be ordered. They'll even have a coffee with you upstairs.

Nice for a walkabout with paths that are reasonably accessible for all without being over developed.
